Vote YES - oldbloke's mutterings
Very pretty but also totally wrong..
Roger and Ruth's first vote is for the Red Lion, they can't stand the Castle or the Queen's Head, but reckon the Green Man is OK, failing that they'd rather have a coffee.. Colin and Cathy want the Castle, wouldn't be seen dead in the Red Lion or the the Queen's Head, think the Green Man is OK as a second option, No Castle or Green Man?.. Coffee Shop it is..
Gary only ever drinks beer in the Green Man because he only ever drinks one beer that none of the other pubs sell.. if he can't have a beer in the Green Man he'll just have a coffee please..
even ignoring the preferences of Quentin and Queenie, when the votes are counted the Green Man goes out at the first hurdle.. Gary's vote now goes for coffee.. Colin and Cathy's votes also go for coffee (their second choice fell at the first) as do Roger and Ruth's..
Result is now 8 votes for coffee.. a landslide result..
